briefing yesterday on a crash landing investigation. our new pictures that the ntsb released. a mysterious light that one of the pilot says he saw what has been a discussion any investigation. the ntsb reveal that the pilot told investigators that he saw the light about 500 ft. before the crash landing. >> neither of the other two flight crew members mentioned as light during their interview with our investigators. in the review of the cockpit voice recorder, there is no discussion on the cpr of the light or of the flying pilot seeing a light. >> investigators said the pilot told them he did not believe that the bright light affected his ability to fly the plane. ntsb officials continue to say the plane came in too low and too slow clipping a sea wall at the edge of the runway. stay with kron4 as we continue our coverage of the investigation at our web site kron4 .com as well as our facebook and twitter feeds and our 247 news channel comcast 193. >> nine minutes after a 11:00 a.m. on wednesday. i'm sorry i say today? >> yes >> i apologize. i will start over again. a little girl was reporte
never read the names out loud. then during our phone call to the ntsb where the person we spoke with confirmed the spellings of the names we never asked that person to give us their position within the ntsb. we heard the person verify the information, and we then rushed the names on to our newscast at noon. today the ntsb issued a statement about what happened. it says the national transportation safety board apologizes for inaccurate and offensive names that were mistakingly confirmed as those of the pilots. a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the pilots on the aircraft. we work hard to make sure that only factual information is released and we deeply regret today's actions. appropriate actions will be taken to ensure that such a serious error is not repeated. we apologized our on website and on our social media site. i've been working for channel 2 for many years. we pride ourselves on getting it right and we have the highest of standards and integrity but the fact is there's just no polite way to say this. today
we had that ntsb briefing this afternoon. that was around 3:00 this afternoon, and a fourth crew member was in the process of being interviewed. we learned not only was the pilots behind the plane, not only was it his first time landing a 777 and the instructor, it was his first time instructing as well. the crash of 214 had several firsts. we knew the pilot behind the controls was making his first landing in a 777. but today we learned this about the instructor. >> he reported this was his first trip as an instructor pilot. the instructor pilot stated that he was the pilot in command. >> reporter: the ntsb says all four pilots are being cooperative. however a key part of most crash investigations has been lost. >> none of the crew members on asiana flight 214 were tested for drugs and alcohol postcrash. >> reporter: drug and alcohol testing is standard with u.s. pilots involved in a crash but not necessarily for foreign crews. at the crash scene, investigators remove luggage and other personal items today and checked the controls in the cockpit. the ntsb says the planes landing
of them may have been hit by an arriving fire engine. ntsb have been walking the length of the runway inspecting a scattered trail of debris. debris. the landing gear, sheared from the fuselage. the interior of the plane. oxygen masks hanging, seats twisted and broken. >> the lower portion of the tail cone is in the rocks at the seawall. and a significant piece of the tail of this aircraft was in the water. >> reporter: we learned today, the pilot, new to flying 777, and the training pilot, let the air speed fall below the 137 knot speed needed for landing. >> there was a lack of interaction between the two pilots. the pilot manipulating the flight control and the one that was monitoring. >> reporter: the ntsb says it wasn't until 4 seconds before the crash that there were any system warnings of a stall. they will interview the crew in english and korean in the final seconds of flight. what would happen in the final seconds of flight? both pilots were senior, did each assume the other was monitoring speed and altitude? aviation analyst, john cox. >> what was the demeanor of the interw
aircraft anomalies or concerns. >> reporter: these new ntsb photos show seats crushed and jumbled together. amazing so many survived. >> everybody screamed. dark and most of ash. everywhere is ash. >> reporter: some passengers thrown from the plane, suffering road rash from skidding along the runway. >> we got there within three minutes. there were flames coming off the plane. >> reporter: the parents of two teenage girls killed in the crash grief stricken, their daughters headed for summer camp here in california. more than a dozen are still hospitalized, two of them paralyzed. still such a violent crash and so few injuries and deaths. >> it is nothing short of a miracle that we had literally 123 people walk away from this. >> reporter: a miracle prompting many questions. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> reporter: and adding to the tragedy of all of this, the san mateo county coroner here saying one of those young women who died may have been hit by an emergency vehicle as it was rushing to the plane. it's not clear whether that person was already dead when the vehicle may have hit it. the m
-old students out of china on their way to a summer camp here in the united states. right now ntsb investigators together with the fbi are looking closely at the wreckage of the runway. overnight, investigators found the plane's black boxes. they have since gotten to their location. critical information about the plane's behavior before. there was not a problem with the engine. the human toll could have been much, much worse. >> and there is significant damage in the aircraft last night. inside, there is significant structural damage. when we see that, we are more -- the advice at the american airport called the glide slope indicater has been out of operation, but she says pilots had many other instruments to enable a safe lapping. >> 53 survivors were taken to san francisco general hospital. a total of 27 adults and 26 children were treated there. some of those patients are out of the hospital this morning, but six are still in critical condition including a child. stanford university hospital also took in passengers. administrators activated an emergency plan and brought in seven t
below 137. it wasn't just give or take a few knots. >> the ntsb says it could take months to come up with a definitive cause with no evidence of mechanical error. all signs are currently pointing to pilot error. joining me now from san francisco is nbc news correspondent tom costello. tom, what are we learning at this point about the plane's final moments and the latest on the injury totals? >> reporter: well, the latest on the investigation is that -- by the way, over my shoulder is where the plane rests just on the other side here of the water. you can see the burned-out shell sitting there. ntsb investigators are on the scene, along with fire an rescue personnel. what they are focusing really on here is why was this plane coming in so low and so slow. it was coming in well below 137 knots. ideally when you want to come in here and land a 777 at san francisco, you want to come in at 137, maybe plus 5 knots to be safe. they were well below that, 15 or more knots below 137 so this is a concern to investigators. this was an experienced crew but the guy who was actually at the controls
again at 6:00 p.m. for an update. and now back to the aviation craft with the ntsb this is a live picture of the wreckage on the tarmac. a reminder of how the plane does not take look at 'em. living on cloud nine with that u-verse wireless receiver. you see in my day, when my mom was repainting the house, you couldn't just set up a tv in the basement. i mean, come on! nope. we could only watch tv in the rooms that had a tv outlet. yeah if we wanted to watch tv someplace else, we'd have to go to my aunt sally's. have you ever sat on a plastic covered couch?

was represented off the jet. skidding across the runway before the burst into flames. the ntsb the plane was flying 30 miles an hour shorter than it should have been as it approached landing. >> about three seconds prior to impact the flight data recorder recorded its lowest speed of 103 knots. at this time, the engines were aat 50% power. and engine power was increasing. at impact, airspeed was approximately 106 knots. >> all right. that is 121 miles an hour at impact. we also know the pie llot was making a first landing in the 777 at the san francisco airport. did that lead to the crash? in which so many were injured and two died. captain mark weiss, flew a triple 7. captain weiss, the pilot of the plane had more than 10 hours flying airplanes, clearly an experienced pilot. 3 4 3 hours of flying a triple 7. it is an 11, 11 and a half hour flight from seoul to san francisco. so he had neverlanded a 777 at this airport. how significant is his limited flight time in control of the triple 7 to this case. >> well certainly the ntsb is going to look at that as a factor, contrib out offi ioff
hotel. i like hotel. i need a bath. >> earlier today, ntsb chairwoman deborah hersman said the investigation into what exactly happened on asiana's flight 214 is just beginning. joining me now, nbc news correspondent, tom castillo. tom covers aviation and has been reporting on this story since the crash. and tom, what do we know about the possible array of possible causes at this moment in the crash? >> reporter: well, let me set the scene for you here. behind me is the remains of flight 214. sitting out there on runway 28 left. you can see that, well, in a minute you're going to see planes have been coming and going right by it all day. what we know now is that there were three captains onboard that plane, as well as a first officer. and one of those three captains was training to -- training may not be the exact precise language -- but was in his final hours of learning how to fly the 777. now, he had flown many other aircraft for some time including the 747. he had 10,000 hours of experience, but only 43 on the 777 and he was on his first approach attempt ever to san fra
time ago the ntsb held a news conference on the deadly 777 crash in san fran san fran. what they learned about the final seconds before that crash landing, plus an "out front" investigation. did cultural factors play a role in the horrific accident? and a runaway train that exploded and has killed dozens. did someone release the brakes? let's go "out front." >>> and good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. is the zimmerman case finally case closed? so george zimmerman's lawyer said today that he's done. he's resting his case tomorrow. i mean, some people thought this trial would go on and on, but it has been anything but that. and there is a good chance that jur george zimmerman will never take the stand in his own defense. now this could be why. a noted pathologist took the stand today and said that according to how he has looked at the evidence it supports zimmerman's account of the night trayvon martin was shot and killed. >> it's my opinion the muzzle of the gun in this case was 2-4 inches away from the skin. so the barrel of the gun was against the clothing, the muzzle
